NuSofting Announces Groove Analogizer, Drum Synth, Now Free
NUSofting has has announced that their Groove Analogizer, an audio controlled drum synthesizer, is now free. The product probably didn’t sell that well since it needs to be triggered by an audio event, and not simply a MIDI note-on message, which may have been confusing to some potential customers.
Groove Analogizer is an “audio controlled drum synthesizer” or a vintage electronic drum tone generator (other old drum synthesizers like the DrumFire, Simmons, Tama Techstars, etc –Ed.). This also means that you must not load, in the host, Groove Analogizer as a VST instrument, it loads as a VST effect, usually in an insert slot. The Groove Analogizer features three oscillators that can be triggered and shaped by the audio input. A trigger can be any kind of percussive sound, both mono or stereo – it can be a .wav file or another VST instrument for example.
For each of the three generators you can choose left, right or left+right input – input can be both mono or stereo. A band pass filter allows you to select which frequency range of the audio source will be used for triggering, so you can separate hi, mid and low tones in the audio input, allowing you to isolate different trigger patterns from the same complex audio source. Groove Analogizer also features Pre-Listening, so that you can monitor which part of the source is selected as trigger. Another control at the input named Sensitivity allows to fine select the loudest triggers filtered by the band pass. So that you may include ghost notes or avoid them.
